Comparing and Evaluating Metagenome Assembly Tools from a Microbiologist’s Perspective – Not Only Size Matters!

An interesting read on different tools for metagenome assembly. To provide a comprehensive overview and guide for the scientific community working an Metagenomics, Vollmers et al. assessed the most common and freely available metagenome assembly tools. Apart from their usability they analyzed the output statistics, sensitivity for low abundant community members and variability in resulting community profiles.
The findings will help us to improve our analytics pipeline.
